For LATE ix's yes. The "early" diagrams have different PNs broken out. Not TOO much difference, I'm sure. Guess I'll tell you when I get everything and go for install...

you don't need the plastic washers on the Z3 shifter

also, there are early and late styles of rod joints. I'd replace it (the bushings oval out). Replacing the seal is stupid easy - use a deep socket (11 or 12mm or something) and simply drive the new seal overtop the old one.

Waking up an old thread.

After getting my suspension all finished, I was shifting into second the other night and something popped, after that I'm not able to shift into second anymore, it's like the shifter is pushed back an inch.

I got the car up on my buddies new lift (man that was helpful) and felt around up in there. I noticed two things, one the Shifting Arm (#1 in the link below) can be rotated about 45 degrees and does not seem to be connected to the transmission. The other thing I noticed is that i can put my finger through the hole at the end of the rod, so it clearly is no longer connected to the clip (#3 in the link).

So, I think I'm going to drop the transmission and put the z3 shifter in, replace all the bushings etc.

I really can't see how I would do this without dropping at least the transfer case, and given that I have a leak at the front of the transmission (back of the engine) I may pull the transmission as well and replace the rear main seal, and the pilot bearing, but only if I have to.

So a couple of questions:

1. Given I have access to a lift, is there any point in trying to do this without dropping the transfer case?
2. Is there any chance I've broken anything that can't be replaced? Perhaps a tab on the transmission?
3. Can someone confirm exactly what I need for the z3 shifter if I want to replace all bushings and other wear parts while in there?


I think it's these parts:

Z3 1.9 Shifter : 25-11-1-434-148
25-1-17-519-669 - Rubber Bushing x1
25-11-1-220-379 - Circlip x2
25-11-1-469-397 - Nylon Bushing (shifter ball,replaced 25-1-11-220-600) x1
25-11-7-503-525 GEARSHIFT ROD JOINT x1
25-1-11-220-707 BEARING, SHIFTING ARM

Chris, you mention a seal above, what part is that?

#17 shaft seal

you need I think a 10 or 11mm deep wall socket. You can just push the old seal inside the transmission using the new seal. apparently there's room for 3 of them in there.

I found out what my problem is:

I'm going to order a replacement, and a t-case bushing also while it's out.

My rear guibo was also very cracked up.
